When we hear the news of any close member of the family or a friend suffering from any serious health issue, our life becomes numb. And especially, when the disease is as deadly as cancer. The name cancer in itself brings chills in our body and dealing with it becomes more difficult. Fighting with the deadly disease takes a lot of courage and support from the near and dear ones makes it an easy task.
The end of the year 2018 proved to be a tough year for the Kapoors, as Rishi Kapoor was diagnosed with a deadly disease, cancer. Rishi ji had flown to New York for his treatment with his wife, Neetu Kapoor. Neetu ji had stood by him during the entire treatment and had been motivating him to be better each day and fight the toughest battle with ease. The entire nation was waiting for Rishi ji and Neetu ji to return back to Mumbai. As soon as the treatment was over, the duo was back in the bay with smiling faces.

Post their return to Mumbai, Rishi and Neetu have been spending some quality time with their friends and family. On October 10, 2019, Neetu Kapoor took to her Instagram handle and shared pictures and videos from their Italian vacation. Rishi and Neetu are accompanied by their close friends and could be seen enjoying their time to the fullest. Neetu ji has worded her post as “Bunch of crazy friends en route to Positano!!! Everyone trying to get the Italian accent right only I sounded like a Tamilian.” These pictures are making us want to take a vacation soon. Take a look:
On October 6, 2019, Neetu Kapoor had shared one more picture with Rishi Kapoor from their vacation in Napoli Centro. She had captioned the picture with a funny statement. The caption could be read as, “How I have to convince him for a pic reminding him I’m not a fan. minestrone soup, cherry tomatoes and that perfect Italian coffee that hits the spot.” Neetu ji’s smiling face in the picture is winning our heart.
In an interview with the Times Now, Neetu Kapoor had revealed her first reaction upon knowing her husband, Rishi Kapoor’s cancer diagnosis. She had said, "My first reaction was, obviously very bad, I was devastated, my kids were devastated. We didn’t know what to do. But then we thought to ourselves that this is it, we have to deal with it. Where he (Rishi) is concerned, he was in denial. For 4-5 months, he was not himself. I think when you start accepting that this is your issue, then you are stronger. I feel he is much stronger for the past, maybe 5-6 months."

Rishi Kapoor has given the credit of his fighting spirit against cancer to his wife, Neetu Kapoor and kids, Ranbir Kapoor and Riddhima Kapoor Sahni. In an interview with the Times Now, he had said, “My kids, Ranbir and Ridhima, have really shouldered my problems. A lot of credit goes to my wife Neetu who has been there as a rock all through my medical wants and procedures. It’s been very time-consuming. It would have been a different scenario if I was in India. My home is there, my family is there. But it’s a tough situation because you’re not home, you are in a different territory. But it has been dealt with. Not that we couldn’t have dealt with it in India, but I had a certain problem that could only be dealt with here.”
On September 6, 2019, before returning back to Mumbai, Rishi and Neetu had gone to Tamil Nadu to seek blessings at the Balaji Temple. Neetu ji had taken to her Instagram handle and had shared glimpses from their trip but it was her video which had caught our attention. In the video, she could be seen nailing a Tamil tongue-twister. She had captioned the post, "After taking blessings of Balaji. entertaining them with a Tamil tongue twister." Take a look at the video:
In an interview with The Times Of India, Rishi Kapoor had talked about the most important thing that he had learned in one year of struggle. He had revealed, “The most important thing that these past nine months taught me, apart from the fact that I had to recover from a disease, is patience. I never had that before. God has taught me that patience is the mother of all virtues. My (medical) treatment is hardly for an hour once in four weeks, but it takes longer for it to work on you. It’s not a push-button thing that you do it once, and then you will be alright. My wife and friends keep telling me that I was a very impatient person all the time... my work style, my way of life... The fact is, you have to be patient and let things take its own course. I have been going through this ordeal of being a patient and it’s interesting how it (the word patient) taught me patience. You can’t always be wanting to do things immediately.” (Also Read: Kareena Kapoor Khan Commented On Ex-Beau, Shahid Kapoor's Kabir Singh Character)
